this stuff is incredibly important but like… at a certain point i think people take things too far? i know everyone says this but it’s so true.. you’re never going to have an honest dialogue with people until you stop having such constant knee-jerk violent reactions to things… like.. as a white person i literally had to be told about white privilege. I mean, that’s what is so great about the tumblr community is the access to information. I started researching feminism which lead me to learn about white privilege.
It’s stupid and fucked up and honestly makes me feel really bad about myself but I didn’t even really think about race issues and white privilege until I was exposed to literature on it. I think about inclusion constantly and my mode of thinking on a daily basis is totally different but literally I know nothing is ever going to move forward until people have a little bit more patience and perspective and allow for people to be a little ignorant about shit. Changing your mode of thinking doesn’t happen quickly and it may never happen if people are exposed to mockery and folks being so effing militant. It’s also really exhausting to be that way all the time. Sometimes I just want to turn my brain off and enjoy some shit that I know is problematic. Because honestly, in this world, in this life everything is problematic. You can be the most understanding and politically correct person in the world but like… do you know where your produce comes from? Or your electronics? I mean.. I’m typing this on a macbook while my iphone sits next to me. I’m not perfect. Definitely not. But I’m constantly making an effort towards happiness. I have to take a big step back from being so surrounded by social justice media all the time. I’m really sick of people being militant and aggressive (it’s mostly alot of young people). It’s exhausting.
Look who’s exhibiting at MoCCA for the first time!! This weekend I’m sharing table F17 (near the food zone!!) with handsome dorks Sam Bosma & Jeremy Sorese & all their sweet stuff. We’re probably the only table with pink hair, a bald head, and a glorious moustache (just kidding, this is NY)
I’ll have my mini zine ALL MY ANIME BOYFRIENDS ($2) , my Game of Thrones art in Postcard Packs ($5) , freebie postcards (FREE), and a selection of signed giclee prints ($20-$30)! If you’re out and about, come say hello!
